I Just want to Know
Life's too short for small talk
so don't be talking trivia now
excess baggage fills this plane
there's more than we should ever allow
there's engines stalling and good men falling
but I ain't crawling away
I just want to know--
am I pulling people closer?
I just want to be pulling them to You
I just want to stay angry at the evil
I just want to be hungry for the true
Folks play follow the leader
but who's the leader gonna obey?
will his head get big when the toes get tapping?
I just want to know are they catching what I say?
I'm a little too young to introspect
and I surely haven't paid all my dues
but there's bear trap lying in those woods
most of 'em already been used
Search me, Father, and know my heart
try me and know my mind
and if there be any wicked way in me
pull me to the rock that is higher than I
